Close Reading {FREEBIE}

Formats Included
Zip (6 MB|7 pages)


This is a Bonus Pack to try out Camp Comprehension: Animals.

Included are 2 passages about chimpanzees at different level, allowing you to differentiate based on the needs of your classroom!

Close Reading is an engaging way to help students work on building their comprehension. The Common Core Standards ask students to dig deeper into informational texts by answering questions and citing evidence.

What’s included:

* 2 high interest passages about Chimpanzees

** Please note: Close Reading is a challenging skill for young students to master. I use these non-fiction passages WITH my students during small group reading time. These passages may be appropriate for higher level 1st graders or independent second graders. Based on the needs of your own students, you may choose to use these high interest passages whole group, small group or independently! **

If you love this pack, make sure to check out the full Camp Comprehension Pack!
